It is worth staying in Tours overnight so that you can visit early in the morning, before the noisy day tours arrive, and then also see the façade when it is illuminated at night.

This is a most impressive cathedral, made more so by the amazing light show they put on. We had only just arrived and just followed the crowds. It was a total wow. Enjoy

Didn't have time to go inside but already love the place. So nice. The fact that Tours is just a small town around the center if you keep patroling then you cannot miss it. Another lovely place to visit in Tours.

Definitely a place to visit while in Tours.A short walk away from old town,this cathedral has some beautiful stained glasses and was built from the 11-12th century ,a lot of history behind it.

Beautiful cathedral, a must see while in Tour. They had a light show on the outside of the cathedral at night. A very beautiful sight.

Tour is a stunning historic city full of interesting landmark buildings and bustling restaurants and bars but the central landmark is this amazing Cathedral that is simply breathtaking. Whatever else you visit make sure you do not miss out on the Cathedrale St-Gatien
